B2 Digital’s CEO Issues Shareholder Letter Outlining the Path Ahead


Tampa, FL, Jan. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire B2Digital Incorporated (the “Company” or “B2Digital”) (OTCMKTS:BTDG), the premier development league for mixed martial arts (“MMA”), is pleased to issue the following Letter to Shareholders from the Company’s Chief Executive Officer:

Dear Valued Shareholder,

I would like to begin today by expressing our sincere gratitude for your commitment, patience, and loyalty as shareholders of B2 Digital. Over the past 2 years, we have put in place a sturdy foundation for truly exceptional growth in the quarters and years ahead. And, with our breakout year in 2021, we have clearly started to see tangible evidence of that growth potential at work.

We saw many important trends take shape last year, including a big jump in the pace of our Live MMA Events, a steady increase in our average per-event revenue levels, and the successful strategic expansion of our ONE MORE Gym business. The result was triple-digit percentage growth in basically every major metric we follow.

2021 saw more events in more new markets than we have seen in a single year. We also saw a strong jump in one of our most important metrics: ticket sales for first-time events in brand new regional markets.

In the past, we have learned to expect little from a first event held in a new regional market because the pre-existing marketing footprint had yet to be laid down. But last year, inaugural MMA events in new markets turned an important corner, more than doubling our long-term average revenue expectations for such events, which is a tremendous signal indicating powerful gains in community awareness of the B2 Fighting Series brand.

That said, we strongly believe we have only scratched the surface of what lies ahead as we enter 2022.

We are targeting substantial growth in the B2 Fighting Series brand in the year ahead, with fifty (50) major MMA events on the schedule. To power those events, our unit economics is poised to deliver strong bottom line progress now that we own outright all necessary assets involved in staging, production, and distribution.

In short, our Development League has been built. The team is ready. The trucks are ready. And the action will officially kick off on January 22 in Fort Wayne, Indiana, as we get set to bring the B2FS to 33 cities across 21 states.

We are initially targeting per-event revenue levels around $50k based on existing trends, pointing to a baseline estimate of around $2.5 – $3 million on the topline for the B2 Fighting Series in 2022, not including the potential for continued growth in per-event revenue trends throughout the year.

Adding to this potential, we have compiled a massive and growing database of tens of thousands of fans. That will provide us with the opportunity to invest further in marketing to our fans across cities to drive substantial gains in ticket sales and engagement.

We also believe our strong growth in brand awareness and exposure will provide new opportunities in 2022. For example, we are working to push gains on the sponsorship side, including adding title sponsors at specific events, which we believe could have the capacity to drive an additional $500k in revenue upside this year. We are also exploring potential deals to gain television coverage and exposure, and we look forward to communicating about that in more detail soon.

In addition, our in-house production company, B2 Productions, will produce all 50 B2FS live pay-per-view events. We are targeting average per-event PPV sales of $15k in 2022, which translates to approximately $750k over the course of the year.

Integral to our strategy is the relationship between our B2 Fighting Series and ONE MORE Gym segments, including how gains in each are capable of augmenting gains in the other.

Hence, we are also very excited about what lies ahead for our ONE MORE Gym segment in 2022. At this point, we have acquired and upgraded five gym locations. Total memberships have grown to over 5,500, with memberships growing at a strong 10% month-over-month clip. At our current pace, the ONE MORE Gym segment is currently pulling in around $130k per month, which extrapolates to more than $1.5 million over twelve months, not accounting for continued monthly growth in memberships.

However, we are not only focused on organic growth in this segment. We also plan to seek out significant additional acquisition opportunities on the Gym side in 2022, potentially doubling the scale of that business in a relatively short time. Over the next 30 months, we plan to have ONE MORE Gym locations in 20 major markets that also represent regular stops for B2 Fighting Series live MMA events.

To reinforce the cross-pollination marketing opportunity between these segments, we are also setting up for a February launch of our Jiu Jitsu training brand as an integrated facet of ONE MORE Gym locations.

Finally, we are firm believers in the importance of the Metaverse technology revolution, and we plan to position the Company to capitalize on it in the form of Live MMA Events being hosted in a manner that is integrated into the operations of key partners with strong positioning in the Metaverse. We are very excited about the growth potential this avenue offers, and we will release more specific details on this strategy soon.

In summary, we have emerged from the pandemic period stronger than ever, having acquired capital and key assets over the past two years that now allow us to scale our model to unprecedented scope and breadth. Right now, that process is still in its infancy in the grand scheme of what we envision over coming years.

2022 is poised to be a breakthrough year for B2 Digital. We are expanding to many more new markets with many more live events on the schedule than ever before. We have also built the capacity to manage multiple live events in different regions simultaneously, and we have the experience, team caliber, and resources to more effectively market those events both locally and virtually.

At the same time, we have lined up both organic and strategic growth trends on the Gym side, which will allow us to better capitalize on the brand growth we are driving through our expanded live combat sports presence.

To accomplish all of this, we have put significant capital to use, which has been transformed into productive hard assets and a highly skilled, motivated team hard at work driving accelerating revenue growth, as well as a management team dedicated to delivering powerful shareholder value in 2022 and beyond.

Best Regards,

Greg P. Bell, CEO

7 OTC Stocks That Made It Big in 2021 for Multiple Reasons


Every time I write about penny stocks and over-the-counter (OTC) stocks I like to reinforce the idea of their volatility. The potential losses are very real. I always mention that I think playing in this arena is to be done with caution. Balance is key. Thus, I’d almost never recommend any investor place their capital in penny stocks alone. It’s just too risky.

That said, there are clearly winners to be found in this class of equities within the OTC markets. And that’s what we’ll be looking at today: the OTC stocks that were winners in 2021. Looking at equities that posted strong returns the previous year is often futile. Past returns do not predict future returns. But in this case, I think it’s a strong place to start.

Most of these penny stocks showed gradual, steady price appreciation throughout 2021. That’s a welcome change in the world of penny stocks. They too often rely on sudden changes of fortune. Chasing overnight successes in equities is a sure fire recipe for disaster.

InvestorPlace – Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

That said, let’s look at 2021’s relatively steady successes in OTC stocks:

  • PetroSun (OTCMKTS:PSUD)

  • Cytta Corp. (OTCMKTS:CYCA)

  • Nanophase Technologies (OTCMKTS:NANX)

  • Helo Corp. (OTCMKTS:HLOC)

  • Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust (OTCMKTS:CHKR)

  • Clinigence Holdings (OTCMKTS:CLNH)

  • Global Warming Solutions (OTCMKTS:GWSO)

2021’s Big OTC Stocks: PetroSun (PSUD)

PetroSun is an energy company that is very diversified. The company operates across oil exploration and production, natural gas, helium and lithium exploration, desalination and solar. That’s a fairly broad chunk of the energy sector and other sectors as well. The company is geographically focused in the American Southwest, with operations in Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico.

PetroSun began 2021 trading at very low prices, at below 10 cents per share. It traded sideways from there, until spiking upward starting in late July. It seems that the company had been gaining a bit of attention in the lead up to a mid-year press release detailing its progress on several developing projects. That release detailed helium, lithium, water and CBD progress, which seems to have been enough to set a new price floor for PetroSun.

It now trades around 40 cents, as it has for the past 6 months. The company’s financial statements show that it reported two consecutive years of net losses exceeding $3 million in 2019 and 2020.

The reason investors remain interested is energy reserves that the company may or may not prove. Nevertheless, traders seem to be propping it up until they are proven or disproven, at least.

Cytta Corp. (CYCA)

Cytta Corp. shares are not the steady performers I spoke about in the intro to this article. The shares themselves traded mostly flat throughout 2021. It was only in early November, when Cytta Corp. became a fully reporting U.S. SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) company, that it peaked.

That was really what made investors believe the firm has good things in store. CYCA stock did make it big in 2021. It appreciated from 8 cents to end 2021 at 53 cents. Take that for what it’s worth. Frankly, it’s difficult to have much confidence in its performance. Regardless, some investors profited handsomely.

So, that brings us to the question of what Cytta Corp. actually does. It develops and distributes video streaming compression software. One of its systems is called the IGAN ICS system “which is incredibly useful and valuable for police, firefighters, first responders, emergency medical workers, industry, environmental and emergency situations, security, military and all their command centers in any emergency situation.”

Cytta Corp. is now responsible for filing with the SEC under GAAP rules moving forward. Thus, it should be more transparent. That’s why it spiked. But at the same time, caveat emptor. The last quarterly report dates back to 2017.

It highlights 2014 operations during which it recorded $11,500 of sales in Q2.

2021’s Big OTC Stocks: Nanophase Technologies (NANX)

Nanophase Technologies is a firm that operates in the nanomaterials industry. It produces multiple metal oxides which it sells into markets including personal care, energy, textiles and plastics.

Share prices steadily increased throughout 2021, rising from 85 cents to $4. That is logical given that Nanophase Technologies has reported six consecutive record quarters.

The firm’s most recent financial results show that it delivered $22 million in revenue through the first nine months of 2021. That exceeded full 2020 revenue by more than 98%. The company noted that its sales pipeline also remains robust, “After delivering more than $22M in revenue during the first nine months, we still had purchase orders in hand for another $27M+ taking us well in to 2022. Approximately $10M of this applies to 2021 customer orders, the majority of which we expect to fulfill prior to 2022.”

The company has found a niche in the beauty industry and looks to continue to exploit it moving forward. If nothing else, it has a straightforward, easy-to-understand business.

Helo Corp. (HLOC)

It is often the case that authority figures can make a company. What I mean is that recognition from a well-known company can thrust a relatively unknown firm into the spotlight. That’s precisely what happened in the case of Helo Corp.

It had been trading very flat — near $1.10 steadily — up until Dec. 3, 2021. It was on that day that Helo, a developer of wearable wireless health devices, announced that it was a recipient of a Deloitte Fast 500 Technology Award.

That sent HLOC stock rocketing upward. And, as noted, “this year and for the first time, Helo Corp., trading as Vyvo was chosen by Deloitte to join this elite group of high-achievers who were selected based on their revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. Helo’s percentage fiscal year revenue growth was 679% during these three years, which is well above the Technology Fast 500 median growth rate of 521%.”

Vyvo technology enables accurate measurement of blood oxygen, blood pressure and heart rate variability along with other health measurements.

2021’s Big OTC Stocks: Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust (CHKR)

Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust is a royalty interest company. This is a relatively uncommon business, so it warrants explanation:

“Royalty interests are favorable for smaller companies that hold ownership rights to developable oil fields but lack the financing or technology to bring these resources into production. Entering into a royalty interest agreement works for all parties involved. The company tasked with bringing the resources into production is entitled under contact to retain a portion of the output for sale on the market. This operator will need to decide for itself whether a particular project will be profitable. In return for access to the oil fields, the producing company pays the field owner a royalty. The owner would not be able to receive this royalty unless the resources are developed, produced and sold, so entering into this agreement is economically profitable for them.”

For the period between March 31 and May 31, 2021 the company recorded $2.153 million in revenue leading to a royalty of 3.73 cents per each share held. The company paid two such distributions in 2021. Share prices essentially quadrupled during 2021, rising from 20 cents to approximately 80.

Clinigence Holdings (CLNH)

Clinigence Holdings is a population health analytics company that provides turnkey software as a service (SaaS) solutions that enable connected intelligence across the care continuum by transforming massive amounts of data into actionable insights. In other words, healthcare analytics.

The company had a strong year in 2021. In the trailing 12 months, it reported $13.3 million in sales, up from $1.6 million in 2020. Clinigence Holdings was profitable during both of those years.

As might be expected, CLNH stock rose in kind. It began 2021 trading near $1.35 but steadily appreciated to end 2021 above $4.

The company doesn’t have any analyst coverage, thus it’s difficult to find projections moving forward. That said, given the massive increase in sales CLNH stock is probably not at risk of dropping precipitously.

If I were to consider investing, I’d pay close attention to gross profit margins as well as the overall revenue growth.

2021’s Big OTC Stocks: Global Warming Solutions (GWSO)

It’s difficult to say why Global Warming Solutions had a strong year other than to note that its share price increased. That’s because information about the company is spotty.

The company added a new board member in October. Dr. Elena Shembel has 40 years of experience in “electrochemical technology, nanotechnology, which realizing the chemical power sources (e.g. lithium and magnesium batteries), fuel cells, solar cells, technologies and equipment in the field of energies, innovative non-destructive non-contact methods.”

Then, in late November the company announced that a “Prominent European University’s Department of Chemistry has successfully conducted a Third-Party Testing & Analysis of the Technology surrounding ‘GWSO’s hybrid hydrogen production system.’”

Note that the company did not name that prominent university. That does strike me as a bit odd, and you as well I’m sure. The funny thing is GWSO stock prices had already shot up before either of those pieces of information were announced. The result was that GWSO share prices increased from $1.55 to $8.40 throughout 2021.

On Penny Stocks and Low-Volume Stocks: With only the rarest exceptions, InvestorPlace does not publish commentary about companies that have a market cap of less than $100 million or trade less than 100,000 shares each day. That’s because these “penny stocks” are frequently the playground for scam artists and market manipulators. If we ever do publish commentary on a low-volume stock that may be affected by our commentary, we demand that InvestorPlace.com’s writers disclose this fact and warn readers of the risks.

The SmartMetric Biometric Credit Cards are the Next Big Thing for the…


NEW YORK, January 06, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) According to independent consumer research contracted by SmartMetric, 80% of U.S. cardholders are seriously concerned about credit card and identity theft, and 67% say they wouldn’t mind paying for biometric cards.

Research by Visa is in line with SmartMetric’s research.

  • More than 65% of consumers are already familiar with biometrics

  • 86% are interested in using biometrics to verify identities or make payments

  • 70% believe that biometrics are easier than using passwords or PINs

The SmartMetric biometric card solution for Banks provides a huge leap forward in credit card security moving security away from PINs and signatures to the vastly stronger biometric fingerprint of the card user.

Built inside the SmartMetric biometric card is a fully functional fingerprint scanner. The scanner along with the powerful internal ARM Cortex processor stores the card holders’ fingerprint inside the card. At no time does the persons fingerprint ever leave the card and it doesn’t require the Bank to hold the card holders’ fingerprint.

Embedding the card holders’ fingerprint into their biometric credit card is as easy as storing your fingerprint on your mobile phone. When the card user receives their card from their Bank they simply touch the square sensor on the cards surface four times and thereafter the users fingerprint is permanently stored inside the card. From now on the card will only work in conjunction with the card holder touching the cards little square sensor on the top of the card.

“It was important for us to ensure that our card was absolutely frictionless for the card user in that it didn’t add time to but in fact speeded up the card payment experience at the checkout or ATM. Our biometric card allows for the doing away of PINs altogether. The fingerprint scan is done in less than a quarter of a second thereby turning on the card and authenticating the user in less time it takes to reach across to the payment terminal or to insert into an ATM. Instant, seamless and secure are the hallmarks of our biometric card solution,” said SmartMetric’s President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

According to industry data there are now more than 11 Billion chip-based payment cards issued globally. The SmartMetric biometric card solution uses its miniature fingerprint scanner inside the card to identify and validate the card user and in under a second following a fingerprint match the card is then “turned on”. Enabling it to perform a credit card transaction.

SmartMetric is a USA based company with sales and marketing partnerships in Latin America, Europe the United Stated. Engineering of the biometric card electronics is done in-house and is the owned intellectual property of the company. SmartMetric has various patents pending and has five significant strategic issued patents.

Having spent years of research and development, SmartMetric has created what is considered to be one of the most advanced and leading-edge next generation product in the credit card industry.

SmartMetric’s Biometric card addresses the multi billion existing chip based credit card market.

Figures published by EMVCo 1 reveal that by year end of 2020, 10.8 billion EMV® chip cards have been issued by financial institutions and were in global circulation – a massive increase of nearly 1 Billion credit and debit EMV® cards compared to the previous twelve months.

The SmartMetric in-the-card fingerprint scanner allows for the cards chip to only work following a successful scan and match of the card users fingerprint. Unlike other biometric cards, the SmartMetric card does not need the card user to go into a bank branch to have their fingerprint stored on their new biometric card. Uniquely, the SmartMetric Biometric Card allows the card user to enroll their fingerprint when they first receive it at home as simply as it is when enrolling your fingerprint on a smartphone.

“Touch and store technology developed by SmartMetric for its biometric card allows mass card issuing financial institutions to issue their cards direct to the consumers as they normally do, without the need for consumers to come into a bank branch to activate their new biometric card. No specialized fingerprint readers or storing of the fingerprint on an online system is needed with the SmartMetric solution. Everything is done on and inside the card itself,” said Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric is a USA based company with sales and marketing partnerships in Latin America, Europe and United States. Engineering of the biometric card electronics is done in-house and is the owned intellectual property of the company.

SmartMetric has issued patents and patents pending surrounding its biometric card technology.

ProConcept Marketing Group Announces Its Anticipated Merger With…


LAS VEGAS, Jan. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via InvestorWire — ProConcept Marketing Group (OTC PINK: PRMK) is pleased to announce its pending reverse merger with Lelantos Holdings, Inc. (“Lelantos Holdings” or “Lelantos”) which has recently executed a consulting agreement with Golden Triangle Ventures, Inc. (OTC: GTVH) (“Company” or “Golden Triangle Ventures”) to assist the company with an array of strategic advisory services.

Lelantos is a professional corporate advisory company that seeks to acquire, purchase, and/or venture with established entities in strategic and emerging market sectors such as engineering, agricultural technology, and medical technology. The company is dedicated to joint venturing with or successfully transforming the entities it acquires at a speed and scale to sustain transformational impact over time to capture full potential. By relentlessly focusing on capability building and assembling winning leadership teams, Lelantos Holdings strives to ensure the right mechanisms are in place to make its entities capable of driving and sustaining this transformational impact.

Nathan Puente, President of Lelantos Holdings, Inc., has recently acquired the controlling interest of ProConcept Marketing Group, Inc. (“ProConcept”) which trades under the stock symbol “PRMK.” ProConcept Marketing Group, Inc. has submitted documentation with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) to achieve its goal of undertaking certain corporate actions necessary for the merger of Lelantos and ProConcept. (This announcement was previously released on Friday, Dec. 31, 2021, but due to platform distribution difficulties it did not reach both company wires properly.)

In addition to the anticipated merger with PRMK and Lelantos, Lelantos has formally initiated a long-term partnership with Golden Triangle Ventures. The partnership is intended to assist the Company in its efforts to become publicly traded while also providing business advisory services for several different strategic projects. Lelantos Holdings, Inc. is managed and operated by the founders of Sonder Fulfillment, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Golden Triangle Ventures, Inc. As part of the agreement between Lelantos Holdings and the Company, Steffan Dalsgaard, CEO of Golden Triangle Ventures, has joined the Board of Directors of Lelantos Holdings, alongside Lelantos President Nathan Puente and Vice President Joshua Weaver.

Moreover, apart from the signing of the consulting agreement, Lelantos Holdings has agreed to repay its initial $500,000 investment from Golden Triangle Ventures in Q1 2022. This investment was used to capitalize the development of a large-scale agricultural refining operation in Michigan. Lelantos Holdings has secured the necessary equipment, developed all operational procedures, trained its employees, and procured relationships with some of the largest farming operations throughout the state to provide the base material for refinement. The equipment is on track to ship out to Michigan in January 2022 and Lelantos Holdings will be facilitating the entire site build and facility operations. This facility is one of the many exciting engineering projects that will go live in 2022. Further, Lelantos Holdings is actively working towards several international developments.

Further extending value to the partnership, Lelantos Holdings has executed an agreement to pay Golden Triangle Ventures a monthly retainer fee, with the first two months of service anticipated to be paid in January 2022. This monthly retainer fee will adjust into a percentage of net profits once the Michigan facility officially launches and begins generating revenue. The consulting services provided by Golden Triangle Ventures will assist Lelantos Holdings in becoming publicly traded and provide a full support structure by collectively implementing professional teams to handle Operations, Marketing, Media, Legal, Accounting, Investor Relations, and many other services.

“I couldn’t be more thankful for the investment that Golden Triangle Ventures provided us in 2021. It helped expedite our operations, galvanized additional investment, and greatly assisted our ability to take our company public. We are more than happy to not only repay our investment but also bring on Golden Triangle as a consultant to help with business operations, compliance, investor relations, publicity and marketing. I have no doubt that our continued partnership will be mutually beneficial and allow us to achieve great heights,” Puente said.

“Executing the consulting agreement formalizes a working relationship that we have been building over the past six months. The GTV team has been incredibly helpful at getting us to the point we are now at. I am excited about this continued partnership and cannot wait to see what we can do together,” Weaver added.

“It’s a true honor to join the team of professionals at Lelantos Holdings as a formal partner and director to their business,” Dalsgaard states. “Our company has been working hard to provide a turn-key support structure to assist its business in accomplishing a multitude of corporate objectives, including becoming publicly traded. I have worked side by side with Nathan and Josh for years and I am strongly confident that the value between this partnership will result in an exciting future for both of our companies and all of our stakeholders involved.”

SmartMetric, the Leader in Credit Card Fingerprint Biometric…


NEW YORK, January 03, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME): Having spent years of research and development, SmartMetric has created what is considered to be one of the most advanced and leading-edge next generation product in the credit card industry.

A credit card that has built inside of it, a fingerprint reader that when you touch a sensor on the cards surface, scans the users fingerprint in less than a second. The user’s fingerprint is compared with their pre-stored fingerprint inside the card and when a fingerprint match occurs the card is turned on. Instant secure user validation that goes beyond the use of a PIN in protecting the use of a credit or debit card when making a transaction.

What sets the SmartMetric biometric card solution apart from the one or two companies who have tried to copy the SmartMetric biometric card is that the SmartMetric card is designed with its own internal power source. This enables the card to function and perform the fingerprint scan prior to the card being inserted into a reader. This allows the card to be used at regular ATM’s and in situations where the card is used in places like a restaurant where the card is taken away from the dining table to be processed.

“When developing the SmartMetric biometric card, we were particularly aware that for its adoption by card issuing Banks and consumers, the card would need to work in all real-life situations in which the public uses cards today. The card had to work in all situations that a card user would want to use their card necessitating that the card had its own internal power source so as the biometric scanning could take place on the card before it was for instance inserted into an ATM,” said SmartMetric’s President and CEO Chaya Hendrick.

The SmartMetric Biometric Card goes beyond using its sub micro electronics inside the card for identity validation of the card user. It has large memory along with a very fast processor making the card an exciting new technology platform for advanced multi applications performed on the credit or debit card. Ushering in a new dimension of advanced offerings for credit card issuers.

“We see the future of the credit card as a multi-function and multi-application platform that can be used in a variety of combined situations such as storing a person’s vital medical records while also being used as a day-to-day credit card. This opens up a whole new area of new and exciting joint marketing opportunities for credit card issuers,” said Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric’s Biometric card addresses the multi billion existing chip based financial card market.

Figures published by EMVCo 1 reveal that by year end of 2020, 10.8 billion EMV® chip cards have been issued by financial institutions and were in global circulation – a massive increase of nearly 1 Billion credit and debit EMV® cards compared to the previous twelve months.

In addition, EMVCo reports that 86% of all card-present transactions conducted globally using EMV® chip technology. This is based on the data that could be obtained from American Express, Discover, JCB, Mastercard, UnionPay and Visa. It should be noted that, globally, 86.1% of transactions are EMV chip.

SmartMetric foresaw the global adoption of credit and debit cards with chips. It embarked on developing a biometric fingerprint scanner small enough to fit inside a credit card over a decade ago. “Reducing the electronics to miniature scale of less than 0.3mm allowing it to fit inside a credit card that meets ISO standards for such cards has been a long process but one we are glad we set out to achieve,” said today SmartMetric’s President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

The SmartMetric in-the-card fingerprint scanner allows for the card’s chip to only work following a successful scan and match of the card users fingerprint. Unlike other biometric cards, the SmartMetric card does not need the card user to go into a bank branch to have their fingerprint stored on their new biometric card. Instead, the SmartMetric Biometric Card allows the card user to enroll their fingerprint when they first receive it at home as simply as it is when enrolling your fingerprint on a smartphone.

Touch and store read once technology developed by SmartMetric for its biometric card allows mass card issuing financial institutions to issue their cards direct to the consumers as they normally do without the need for consumers to come into a bank branch to activate their new biometric card.

SmartMetric is a USA based company with sales and marketing partnerships in Latin America, Europe and United States. Engineering of the biometric card electronics is done in-house and is the owned intellectual property of the company.

SmartMetric has issued patents and patents pending surrounding its biometric card technology.
